It seems to me that…
In “spiritual and human matters”,
both the “teacher” and the “pupil” inspire,
and get inspired.
much or little,
could not “see”.
I was working for a friend some days ago. An important message from my Helpers was that she she should take care of herself with Kindness and Gentleness, which I told her of course.
But then I was wandering about the two words. Was it not the same thing?
Apparently not, since Helpers said both. So I went looking on Wikipedia 🙂 , and I like to share with you.
Kindness seems to contain Amability, showing Consideration for others, it is marked by acts of Generosity and Care, and is not concerned with expectations, rewards, or praise.
Gentleness seems to be more like a virtue, Mildness, “resistance” to brutality, does not submit to tyranni or violence, and responds with tender Awareness to others’s experience of pain. Then of course one can “go deeper”…
Both were described as “concepts” to apply/use on others. But we can use them on ourselves too. 🙂
Gentle Loving (I add) Kindness…how beautiful! Beautiful …Like a Flower.
Let us put a little more of that into our Lives, and our Relations.
Scientific and logic explanations YES!
So amazing when science touches philosophy touches spirituality touches our world and ourselves!
Gratitude for the thousands bridges created “In Between” through this years…
Wonderful to hear what our Helpers told us being “proven” now!
And still…. there are Miracles everywhere, explained and rationalized some of them, still Miracles!
Like the Ice Flowers on a cold winter,
Like the Misteries of our Bodies, our Brain, our Conciousness,
And the Rest
If we met a wounded Child,
or a wounded Animal,
it would touch our Heart…
We would feel Compassion,
we would do anything to help.
At times we meet our Inner Child,
who is also hurt and wounded.
At times we embrace it, listen to it,
and work together.
At times we treat it like a hindrance,
and try to cover it up,
or make it disappear.
What is the difference
between the wounded Kid or Animal,
and our own?
Paths usually start with enthusiasm,
Sometimes they get easier,
sometimes they get harder.
If they get harder,
moving along the line of least Resistance,
or accepting and Surrendering,
is up to Us.
Right and wrong do not exist,
Since the Truth is
there is no Truth.
Shame on you!?
If it comes …
Look at it,
Listen to what it has to say,
and dissolve it.
You are alright,
perfectly all right!
You are growing,
doing what You can…
will bring You further,
where You need to be.
there is no need for “that”!
Little social contact, little entertainment, no shopping, no culture,
where to go, what to do, and especially how to feel? For how long?
Corona times are tough, and a few of us are “closing down”.
No reason for that.
Some “wise” ones may comment “It’s all in the Mind”…
Is it enough when you are single, and feel lonely?
Alone we come here, and alone we are going to leave…
Feeling lonely is a choice we do not need to bend to, but observe.
And “Boredom” , and “feeling silly”, and “purposeless” is also okay.
Let us be our Friend, and forget our Judge for this time.
Let us forget that we need to “produce” anything at all, if we cannot.
Let us Embrace this Shining Being we each one of us is
with Compassion and Gentleness,
we are Life, we are Spirit on a journey,
and everyday can be a Miracle, whatever happens.
We have so much! We can reach out! We can create and do!
Nature is still there!
There are so many Blessings also, if we look.
Gratitude may save our Lives,
or at least help us, if we allow it to flow.
Take care dear People!
Some of us (couples and families), are still, or even more, under pressure, these days.
Not talking about economics, or political situation, the whole rest…
It may feel like corona never ends, it will, but it will take time, and patience until then.
When we are confined from our Freedom, and restricted by forces we have not voluntarily chosen, we FEEL PRISONERS. Even we would rebel , we would still be or feel restricted in many ways. And none of us likes that.
But WE DO HAVE CHOICES, since we are confined in our “inner core”, more or less home, with few around. We still are, in a way, free, free inside.
The closest People (our partner, our kids) may become the focus of our frustrations, and our projections. Our rage may express many ways, and not necessarily be “understood” or “accepted” by them. They too have their own “issues”. All tensions may end by poisoning us, if it goes “wrong”, or by enriching us, if it goes “right”.
WE CHOOSE, not corona, not government, not restrictions.
“Things” to maybe reflect upon, in order not to submit or destroy our Relations, which are most important as the nearest Circle, could be…. (And surely there re plenty more…), to remember that…
Restrictions and what is happening “out there” is NOT what is happening in our Hearts.
(Our Hearts may be sad these days, or heavy, still…)
Our HEARTS, and our SOULS are and always will be FREE AND HEALTHY, whatever happens.
And LOVE, COMPASSION and PATIENCE always win, if there is anything to win, and our People are worth it.
We as Human Beings do have an exclusive way of expressing called COMMUNICATION.
At this moment we do need to TELL OUR TRUTH, masks are not possible when we are pressed together.
We have an opportunity to get to know ourselves and each other deeper, in “good and bad/black and white”, and “silly”, since there is no place to hide.
When we allow ourselves to EXPRESS sincerely, but keeping our Heart with us, WE MAY LEARN AND GROW , both within ourselves and within our closest Relations.
Another instrument we can use is LISTENING, still WITH OUR HEART.
And give ROOM, and moments of REST AND PEACE TO EACH ONE TO BE. It just needs to be taken care of.
We do have NATURE out there, to be with, and recharge.
We have SILENCE to turn to, good books, wise words by wise teachers, creative options, and prayers, meditation, blessings and gratitude to turn to. We got friends we can contact.
Some of us even have a spirituality to turn to. So many treasures!
Let us focus on what WE DO HAVE, instead of focus on what we do not.
And it all will probably be easier. (Well, if I did not believe it, I would not be writing it).
Take care, be good!
That Everything is
That our Planet’s body,
and all other Beings’s bodies
are Healing and Healthy.
That we recognize our Light,
the others’s Light,
and act accordingly.
That we accept our Strenght
and our Limits,
and move beyond.
and Compassion Grows.
And the Rich shares,
as the Poor does.
And we understand,
that we All
depend on one another.
Let it be fresh,
Good new year!
Big fish, small fish…
small fish will … probably be eaten by big fish…
but no small fish no food for Big fish…
so… no small fish, no Big fish.
Starving Big fish, no good, or ?
(this is not a political statement, even though it could be:)
Big drop: many small drops…
Rain, our Waters…
equally important things and
Big or small,
We all contribute.
(very very very deeeep reflection)
Sure a few of us already tried it. Suddenly a friend, a work companion, someone is, or could be, infected.
And it does change things, and sets them in prospective. And it fills much.
Isolation: no more contacts until things are clear. STOP.
Awareness, and reflection. Carefully.
This one corona is a tricky one, still, like the half empty and the half full cup, it is a matter of prospective.
Do we choose to allow the doubt of this moment to fuck us up, or do we try to make the best out of what we do have right now? Are we victims, or are we in charge?
And…should it be there, and we soon will know, and it will pass again.
And… if we got it now, we will not infect others afterwards.
In a sense, it is like a funny game, after some unknown gambling, that none of us choose, or needed.
Now it is STOP, now it is GO…
And… in any case, not much to do about it, once is has maybe manifested,
more than try to make the time that has to pass FRUITFUL,
AS MUCH AS ONE CAN.
“Paranoia” can even transform it into a double sickness, so we do not need that on top.
POSSIBILITIES …WHEN ALONE… (Any! ), could be a medicine…
Create, do, not do, discover, read, music, relax…
We are waiting…
Take care, sweet people!
Whoever we are, wherever we live, and whatever we think or believe caused this worldwide thing called corona to “happen”, the fact is that we all are in it, one way or the other.
Exactly like climate change, and many other common issues on our Earth. Going “better” here, going “worse” there…
And whether we believe, feel or think, that we are One Conciousness, or not, we still all have to deal with all the issues, included this one, here in this Life.
Ohhhh! Who am I to speak and to be listened to? Just one of us. Anyone has the right and duty to express, or to remain silent.
I intake my place, “banal, right, wrong, wise”, if all these definitions have a meaning…
So, an “observation” here, you probably also have done…
Where are we? What can we do?
I would love to have a “solution”, but I obviously do not, or maybe I do, or maybe we do?
Maybe we can make “miracles”? In the quantum world, it should be possible.
It seems to me that four main “opposite” directions have appeared, probably more if we look closer.
And most of us move between these, trying to find some kind of balance. And they all are somehow “contagious”, and spread, exactly like corona. So…
Some of us seem to have “understood” and “accepted” that this new “state” we all are deeply involved in, can be used to “go deep into” what we otherwise may have interest in, maybe “difficulties with”, and usually “no time” for.
We “move inwards”, explore, and maybe “learn and grow” (hopefully).
We take the “we got to make the best out of it”, “shit happens sometimes”, or “I do not care, it will pass” position.
We, others, are “frozen” and have become “victims”. We fall into dispair and depression. Isolation makes us numb and passive, or fear disables us from any action or reaction. We are slowly drowning.
We, others, are “embraced” by rage, and engage in “fights” directed outward, and at times also inward.
There is no “right and wrong”, or at least, I am not the judge.
Though the “result” of our position may be of quite a different nature.
Swim, drown, or ban, our choice.
(And let us not be mistaken, we all move through all these, and more, states).
It would be very easy to say this is “my way”, and this is “how we survive”. There are thousands, millions ways to go about. If they work… maybe we got to pick some up and try, or to invent them.
Then, there is the “other dimension” to it, that some of us are into, too.
Transcendence… Moving a little “further away”, observing the Energy of what is happening, and dealing with this however we can, know and believe is “proper”.
And in any case, release or transform the Energy that “hurts us” into the one we can live and be “strong and comfortable” with , without closing our eyes, be false to ourselves, or get stuck in the “silly side” of the ego.
Transcend and sublimate from/in the “we all are One” position. And work in/from that dimension.
All positions will influence ourselves, our Relations, and our World.
Apathy, fear, and rage, are not very productive, when allowed to eat us up. Rage and fear can be transmuted into action that makes sense, without us being a “victim” of them.
And, should we believe that we all are One, let us watch, choose carefully, and do what is needed.
Let us NOT allow this thing, or anything else, to fuck us up!
Let us Live the best we can.
Health, Peace and Love to you, dear People.

Part of our World is closed down, and our future is uncertain. They tell Us to keep tight to our Families, and few Persons.
At this moment in time it is more and more necessary to HAVE A GOOD TIME. And most of Us know HOW to have a good time, and WHO We have a good time with. Though it may not always be easy to interreact within our little Human group, whatever group We have, especially when we are FORCED (in some places) to stay at home.
Here is my appeal, surely one on many millions, based on my experience with different kinds of groups and families.
Maybe this corona thing is giving Us the possibility to GROW in HUMANITY?
If…some kind of disturbancy should appear, maybe this text could be of inspiration?
It is simple, this does not mean easy, not necessarily.
*RESPECT Yourself and the Others.
Then, BE HONEST.
*LISTEN TO Yourself and to THE OTHERS.
We need COOPERATION RIGHT NOW, maybe more than before.
If uncomfortable feelings may arise, they need TO BE EXPRESSED, TAKEN CARE OF, and RELEASED. (We all are under pressure, so they may, soon or later).
*Then PATIENCE, (and about that We all always can learn a little more).
We may DEEPEN OUR RELATIONS, and LEARN MUCH about OURSELVES, and OUR HUMAN RELATIONS.
MAYBE NOT SO BAD?
And yes, We all know, and We all are capable, if We wish and care.
Be good, take care of one another, and be kind.
In this same occasion (Samheim), if wished and needed, we can reflect upon the patterns/behaviours and beliefs we have created this year, which do not serve our Light/Life any longer. Cleaning up is always good, and one can keep on and on.
We can look at them, and honor them, each one. Through them we have grown, and we are grateful for that. We can now choose to release them, shape and intake new Visions. We can choose to step in a new moment of Power and positive Awareness, a step further, for our Growth. And if we are loving, stronger and clearer, the World around us will reflect it, and be a better place for all.
Helped by the FullMoon, we can wash ourselves clean, while new Visions and Dreams can move forward and grow in our Conciousness.
So many small and big Deaths we go through our Lives!
Be good, take care. Good celebration.
The time of our Dead and Ancestors is coming up, Samheim. This year, we have the FullMoon with.
Let us remind Them and honor Them, our backbone, and our stories Together, our shared Lives, in our way, and our time. If we never met them, still they have been there.
Let us give a Thought, a Prayer, or celebrate.
Alone or with others, in Laughter or in Silence…
They are free now, and so are we.
And let us “support”, (if we are able to), the Ones who died alone, or still “not resting”,
by showing them a Path, or a Bridge, to get released.
(for other inspiration, please see “Halloween”, or “the Night of the Dead” on the blog, or older ones under “Inspiration” (put the word in the search lens)
Amazing how much we
need to manifest ourselves through Noise,
and how attached we seem to be to it.
Noise, noise, noise.
Have a day off,
or half a day,
without phone, computer, radio, tv,
without machines, without talking…
Listen only to Natural Sounds,
or to no Sound at all,
Fresh and clean?
Some are going to tell You
that You are wrong and weak,
and You got a long and hard way to go,
struggle, and pay.
Be slave, until someone else frees You.
Some are going to tell You
that You are right and beautyfull…
Maybe You forgot Your own Wisdom?
… It is still there, maybe asleep.
We all can improve, if we so wish,
that is what some of our Life is about.
And some Guidance can be fruitful,
And sure Exchange too,
still… We are Free to choose,
It is Our Life,
Our Free Life,
behind it all.
The best MEDICINE is,
in my opinion,
IMPROVE WHAT YOU LOVE,
and IMPROVE IN LOVE.

It seems We “need”
to be commanded upon,
to be told what to do,
and what not to do.
And We seem to love to obey.
That is how We create
both “good” and “bad” “Chiefs”
to rule upon Us.
“Good” Guides are a “good” thing…
They express our Voices,
and act for common Good.
What about we enriched Ourselves
by “allowing Our Own inner Guide”
to express and act when necessary,
and to shut up when
nothing relevant appears?
and some Free Room
for Something Else
